Breastfeeding joys

I'm about to talk about breastfeeding. If this bothers you, please read one of my past posts or go check out another blog. I won't hold it against you.  It's 11:30 pm and I am feeling very happy right now. After a long day of travel for a family wedding (7 hours in the car,… Continue reading Breastfeeding joys

Sunday dinners

We live with my mother-in-law right now, and Sunday evenings is when we all eat dinner together. My husband likes to cook, and it's always delicious...but tonight he actually did a themed dinner!  We ate outside, one of the lovely bonuses of summertime. There's something special about fresh air, good food, and being with family.… Continue reading Sunday dinners

Officially Summer

We unpacked the ice cream machine yesterday. Two batches have been made, both dairy-free, one egg-free (and of course both gluten-free, as goes with everything here). I got both recipes from Danielle Walker's first cookbook, Against All Grain. You can find it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble, along with her other two wonderful cookbooks. … Continue reading Officially Summer

NingXia Red Popsicles

Just sharing a recipe I made the other day,  knowing that this week was going to be very hot. This is a really nice way to get Big Brother his NingXia serving and keep him cool at the same time. Plus, he thinks it's super special - win!  This recipe makes four popsicles, with 1oz… Continue reading NingXia Red Popsicles

Whole 30 – final days

Here we are near the end of our Whole 30 journey, and while it's been a good experience overall, I must admit we timed it poorly. Next year, we will do it from January second through the thirty-first. We had to endure our style being cramped for Super Bowl snacks (bothered my husband more than… Continue reading Whole 30 – final days

Whole 30, day 2

Well, hubby and I began our #whole30 yesterday. It went off pretty well, but with one hitch - in the bustle of the morning, he only had a NingXia Red packet,¬†carrots, and guacamole when he headed off to work. Needless to say, he came home ravenous. Luckily dinner was ready when he arrived, and I… Continue reading Whole 30, day 2

What I’ve Been Up To

December is a pretty busy month for many people, the Bouchers included. We have multiple family birthdays (one of us, and several relatives) and Christmas (and all of the associated preparations). I tend to knit like a fiend during the fall and December, and since going gluten-free, I have developed the habit of testing recipes… Continue reading What I’ve Been Up To
